COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark.  The addition of rolled oats softens Yeti’s notoriously roasty backbone and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle create a unique dark fruit character.  Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a softer beast.

All these yeti taste the same to me. Had this on tap and was hoping it would be rather friendly because it said oatmeal. Forgettaboutit, just as rude as any impy stout. Rather volatile on the buds and the smell is not too bad, friendly easy roasty stout, is missleading before you taste it. Not really a sweet stout, heheh. No real co2 to speak of.

JStax (3234) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2013
22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a thick, viscous black with a khaki head of foam. Aroma is sweet oats, chocolate, coffee, nougat, and peppers. Taste is more on the sweet side than anything. Robust sweet chocolaty finish. Thick and creamy mouthfeel.

(22oz bomber) inky, very dark espresso brown color, oily body, thick lasting dark brown head, nice coating of the glass. Nose of oats, rich dark chocolate, touch of alcohol, very smooth, very light licorice/herbal hops, bits of raisin too. Taste of licorice, dark chocolate shavings, oats, thick body, smooth linger.

Pours the color of a Black Stallion with head the color of the cliffs of the Grand Canyon. Smells of the very oats its named after with hints of meal and maybe a little vanilla. Tastes like an explosive mixture of the black power ranger, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and power. My chest hairs grow. I love the Yeti series.

Pours pitch black with dark brown head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Taste is bitter sweet with a slightly hoppy finish.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Pours a very thick, black color with a huge dense, deep tan head. Aroma has a lot of roasted malt character, a good dose of coffee, light raisin, lots of centennial hops in there too. Flavor has a lot of licorice, an odd banana flavor comes through, coffee, grass/weeds and finishes with a very hot alcohol flavor and herbal hops. Body is very dense and oily but the alcohol heat doesn’t work well with this in my opinion. Overall, a very "meh" offering in the Yeti line. The licorice and herbal flavors in this beer really put me off. The nose smells fantastic but the flavor fails to deliver in this raters opinion.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
Tap at Newport Pizza and Alehouse. Pours pitch black with a huge mocha head; overflowed from my glass. Aroma is roasted barley and slight oatmeal with distinctive chocolate notes. Taste is sweet but balanced by a long lingering dry bitterness, great blend of tastes. Creamy mouth feel, full bodied, and surprisingly soft carbonation. Awesome stout, really enjoy all the iterations of the yeti.

Pailhead (5062) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, and some faint burnt notes. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with no transparency and a one finger brown head that quickly settles to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate sweet chocolate with a touch of vanilla. There are some black licorice notes in the background. The finish has espresso, roasted malt, pine, and light burnt notes. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

tectactoe (2299) - Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Super black, oily pour with a deep, deep mocha head that rests as a collar and film. Aroma is sweet and smooth dark chocolate, a sweet creaminess, brown sugar, some milk, and a good amount of oats. Taste is roasty oatmeal and roasted malts, light dark cocoa nibs with a mild, milky underlying sweetness. Maybe just a touch of coffee beans throughout. Creamy mouth feel with a lightly bitter finish. Another Yeti variant, another extremely tasty & well-done beer.
